Glendale is the third-largest city in the County of Los Angeles. 200,000 residents, including significant Armenian, Spanish, and Korean-speaking populations, live in Glendale in 37 distinct neighborhoods spread over 30 square miles.
Community meetings in Glendale have historically been expensive, poorly attended, and left out the majority of affected stakeholders. For the Public Art Master Plan, the city took a different approach. They partnered with Community Arts Resources (CARS) for community outreach, and instead of paying for a costly series of 10 community meetings, CARS used coUrbanize to reach the entire Glendale community.
